The thought of filling Daisy Buchanan's shoes in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" has Carey Mulligan shaking in her boots.
It was announced in November that the sprightly Brit actress is set to play Buchanan in Luhrmann's version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved novel, and Mulligan chatted about the film's progress while at Comic-Con in San Diego.
“We start rehearsing in a month, and start filming in September,” the starlet tells Empire Online. And how does Mulligan feel about taking on such an iconic character? "Terrified,” she admits.
Mulligan adds to the BBC, "It's daunting. It's the biggest thing I've been involved in...but I'm raring to go."
Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing Jay Gatsby, with Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson. Carey Mulligan may be frightened about this star-studded film, but we’re downright excited!
